In this side event the participating organisations will highlight the importance of applying a human rights lense to addressing climate change, likely to affect the most marginalised communities, and members within communities, most. This event will highlight not only the value of using a human rights based approach for understanding the true threat that climate change poses to humanity but also the opportunities of rights approaches in mitigation and adaptation. In this side event we will explore several rights based approaches to climate change, including gender, climate justice and land rights.
